Adults Support Groups
The Wellesley adult support groups listed here have identified their focus on adult therapy in Wellesley, adult counseling, help for Wellesley adults in therapy, or Wellesley adult counseling. An adult support group in Wellesley and adult psychologists mostly work with adults, handle a broad range of issues especially as they relate to adult relationships, and adult child relationships.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Wellesley Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Wellesley is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Wellesley are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
